Dear Jun,

did you include HLM in the PATH variable? See help hlm. There you will find a link under "Description" on how to proceed.
And restart your computer before trying to run your dofile again.

Best,

Hawal

> I am trying to use hlm (the Stata ado file written by Sean F. Reardon at Stanford) in Stata to run HLM.  See part of my codes below: cntnew is the country id, and individuals are nested within countries.  `depvar' is a macro for a dependent variable, and `lev1' and `lev2' are two macro's for level 1 and level 2 variables.  What I noticed in my file directory after running hlm mkmdm is that a mdmt (multivariate data matrix template) was produced, but not the mdm file.  I am using HLM6.08 and Stata11.2.  Also before running the hlm suite of commands, I merged individual level and country level data, and then sorted by the country id, cntnew.  I also dropped level-2 missing.  These two are considered to be some common causes of failure to produce mdm files.  But I don't have any problem running HLM (models) in HLM (the software) following the right procedures.  I think I might have missed something....Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
